Hello all brides-to-be! Congratulations on your engagement! My name is Diana, I am a New York State Certified Makeup Artist based out of Suffolk County. I also travel to New York City and upstate. My professional makeup artistry journey began in 2015, while working at Sephora and Chanel Cosmetics. Working for these great company's have allowed me to master my art as well as provided me a platform and opportunity to create real relationships with anyone who sat in my chair.
I am truly passionate about my Brides and take a lot of pride in listening carefully to deliver all individual beauty wishes. All applications are customized ranging from soft, natural to high glam or in between. My mission is to make every bride look and feel their very best selves on their special day while creating beautiful memories and making long lasting friendships. I look forward to meeting and connecting with you.
The Wedding Industry
My first experience in the wedding industry became very crucial to me as it gave me the confidence and knowledge to pursue it further. One of my instructors from beauty school hired me as her assistant to a wedding she was doing in Brooklyn, NY. That alone, was a huge compliment. While in action, all the excitement in the air and the laughter with all the bridesmaids, the bride and her mother filled my spirit with so much joy! I walked out of there with immense gratitude and so much knowledge. This was the moment that I came to the realization that I had fallen in love with what I was doing. I was inspired, I found what I want to do for the rest of my days.
The Wedding Memories
I have been so blessed to meet and work with so many wonderful ladies, but this one memory is of a super sweet bride that I met for her bridal shower. She decided to hire me as her artist for her big day! She was very concerned with her skin as she was very stressed out with the wedding planning but when I was done with everything, all her worries had gone out of the window. She was so grateful that I had brought her vision to life and loved her makeup so much. The light in her eyes told me everything that I needed to know in that moment! It is for moments like these that I put so much love and intention in what I do.
I consider myself a very versatile makeup artist as I have experience with many different types of skin tones, age and style. I am consistently learning new product information and growing my skills set to stay up to date with all trends while considering what suits each unique face. Every bride deserves to look and feel amazing while still looking like themselves.
I began my professional journey in 2015 as soon as I finished my makeup artistry certification. I started with a few bridal parties and a lot of occasion makeup. Feedback, reviews and referrals have played a really big role in the growth of Dee Beauty NY. I am so grateful for the love and appreciation of all the people that I meet while doing what I love. I believe in my company, each year it is better than the last and I owe it all to my amazing clients and brides.
